The M Pro 2 sub ohm tank from Freemax has been out a good few months now. The M Pro 2 is the newer version of the Freemax Mesh Pro, which was a very highly regarded tank and made many top sub ohm tank lists. I never tried the original, but a few complaints I have seen were that the top cap sliding mechanism was a little too easy to open, which could cause liquid spillages, and that the resin version of the Mesh Pro could be a little fragile.
Let’s have a look at what Freemax have done with the M Pro 2 to address these issues.

Design & Build Quality
The M Pro 2 tank is constructed from resin and stainless steel. The original M Pro was available in either resin or steel, with the resin model obviously being fragile and susceptible to breaking if dropped accidentally.
This hybrid design should hopefully alleviate some of that fragility as the resin on the top cap and bottom airflow control ring are encased in a chunky stainless steel ring, with cut outs to see the resin beneath. It gives the tank a sturdy look, which at first I wasn’t a big fan of. It has grown on me over my testing period, but may not be for everyone.
The glass that comes pre-installed on the tank has a cut glass pattern, if I’m honest that had to go straight away (totally subjective, it just makes me think of an 80’s ashtray). Once I swapped it for the plain glass included in the box, that’s when I started to appreciate the tanks’ looks a little more. Both these glass tank sections hold 5ml of juice (TPD 2ml), so it’s just a matter of personal preference.
The top cap has a push and slide mechanism to access the juice fill port. There is a little red dot which indicates where you push and it’s sturdy and slides very smoothly, clicking back into place nicely when closed. Freemax says they implemented 3 steel balls in the sliding top cap mechanism, which increases friction and reduces accidental opening of the top cap. It is still easy enough to open with one hand, and during my testing I’ve had zero leaks or issues with it.
When you slide open the top cap, if you look down the drip tip you can see a little air release hole, which helps air to escape when filling the tank with liquid. Being a sliding top cap, it’s nice to see the air release hole as there is only one fill hole. The fill hole is big enough, but air locks can still happen, so the air release hole allows pressure to be released when filling.
The drip tip is an 810 with dual o-rings and the drip tip hole also has an o-ring in it, so you should be able to use any 810 drip tip with the tank if you want to. The included drip tip is made from resin and matches the rest of the resin on the tank, in whichever colour scheme you have chosen. It’s a chunky drip tip, but I found it to be comfortable to use.
The airflow control ring is nice and smooth when adjusting. It also has a stopper at fully closed and fully opened, which prevents the air flow ring free spinning. Although smooth, the ring won’t move by itself, it has a nice restriction to its movement.
The coils for the M Pro 2 are Freemax’s new COILTECH 4.0 SS904L coils. These coils are made with military grade SS904L mesh and have a 95% Tea Fiber Cotton and 5% Organic Cotton wick. The coils are compatible with the original M Pro and the original coils are also compatible with the M Pro 2.
The coils are really big, with enormous wicking ports too, so I can’t see there being any issues with wicking. This is a good thing as the coils do run on the higher end of wattage so liquid is going to need to keep the coils saturated well to avoid any dry hits.
In the box you get the M1 and M2 coils, a single and double coil respectively. The other two coil available are the M3 and M4, a triple and quadruple coil.
The full range of coils and their recommended wattage ranges are as follows:
M1 Mesh Coil 0.15ohm: 40-70W | Best 65W
M2 Mesh Coil 0.2ohm: 60-90W | Best 80W
M3 Mesh Coil 0.15ohm: 80-110W | Best 100W
M4 Mesh Coil 0.15ohm: 70-110W | Best 95W
The airflow on the M Pro 2 is very, very airy! Fully open I feel like there’s no restriction at all. I personally prefer a bit more of a restricted vape when vaping DTL and I had to close the AFC ring ¾ of the way to get it where I like it. It’s not an issue, as long as I can close it to where I like it then I’m fine with that.
Flavour on the M2 coil is really, really nice. The coil wicks beautifully and dry hits are non existent, even running at the highest recommended wattage. This coil is up there with the best sub ohm coils that I’ve tried.
Coil life has been good too. I’ve gotten over a week of use before the flavour started to drop.
The M1 coil was lacking in flavour compared to the M2 coil, for me. Not bad at all, but after the M2 coil there was no comparison. The M1 coil wicks great too, but after the flavour of the M2 coil I gave the M1 coil a few tanks full of liquid then had to move on to other things.
Not having tried the M3 and M4 coils, I can’t say how they perform.
The M Pro 2 didn’t leak at all while I was using it. It’s a thirsty tank though, probably why you get two bubble glasses instead of a straight and bubble.
Overall, the M Pro 2 is a great sub ohm tank. The M2 coil included is a fantastic performer, so it’s a shame the M1 coil doesn’t quite provide as good flavour.
No leaking, plenty of airflow if you want it, strong and sturdy and the sliding top cap sure feels secure to me. I was throwing it in my pocket and never had it open on me.
The M Pro 2 is more suited to dual battery mods, due to the high wattage required for the coils, which is why it’s a shame the M1 coil does pack as much flavour; it would be easier on your batteries and provide a more realistic use on a single battery mod.
For me, this is one of the best sub ohm tanks that I have used.
- Great build quality, sturdy tank
- No leaking
- Really great flavour from M2 coil
- Compatible with older Mesh Pro coils
- Good coil life
- Coils run on the higher end of wattage, not really suited for a single battery mod (Subjective)
- M1 coil not in same league as M2 coil
